My fathers computer had no sound so I went into control panel- sounds & audio. when i moved the volume slidebar it went back to the bottom. under device mgr-properties it said everything was working fine. went out on a limb and installed a soundblaster sound card. at first got the same problem but then went in control panel and moved the volume slide bar and it worked fine. I came home and 1 hour later it reset itself to the bottom and wouldn't move again. I called him 20 min. later and it seems to be working fine for now. does anyone know why it would do this?????

are the drivers for the sound card upto date? Is your father using other media players?

I have the same type of problem only the opposite happens, the volume is stuck on full.When I try to open "Adjust Audio Properties" it says RUNDLL error loading MMSYS.CPL. I've extracted the file from my CD and also MMSYSTEM.DLL into c:\windows\system but to no avail. Any ideas?
